Net Literacy increases its student volunteers’ life skills, job skills, and provides an opportunity for service to the community in a project based learning program. Harrison College, Net Literacy’s newest partner, is encouraging student success and students to progress their education by granting all Net Literacy volunteers that receive the recommendation from the faculty board member a $3,000 scholarship ($750 per year) to attend Harrison College’s IT program.
According to national statistics, the average high school graduate earns $1.2 million over their lifetime while a college graduate earns $2.1 million over their lifetime. Annually, the average high school graduate earns $30,400 per year while the average college graduate earns $52,200.
Through this scholarship program, Harrison College is recognizing Net Literacy’s student volunteers extraordinary contributions to our communities – and encouraging Net Literacy students to continue their success by preparing for their future with a college degree.
